INTERVIEW: Marco Rus talks contract extension and aims for next season

Rus extends his stay until 2025...

19 June 2023

Marco Rus spoke of his delight after agreeing to extend his stay with Coventry City until the summer of 2025.

The midfielder has signed a new two-year-deal, after an impressive season with the Under-21s and out on loan.

Rus spent time with Hereford and Chorley, before captaining the Sky Blues Under-21s in the Birmingham Senior Cup final.

Upon signing his new contract…

“I was really happy.

“I didn’t know much until the end of the season, but to be able to sign a new deal here, I’m really happy and I’m really pleased.”

 

Looking back at last season…

“It was really good. I had a good spell out on loan with Hereford and Chorley as well and I really enjoyed that and then in-between with the under-21s.

“I enjoyed my football, and I would like to thank all the academy staff for helping develop me throughout the season.”

 

Becoming a leader in the Under-21s group…

“I did, but that group had plenty of leaders, but at he back end of last season we did well and it’s a shame we missed out on the play-offs in the end.”

Learning from the loan spells out in the National League North…

“I enjoyed the loans. Getting game time is really important for me at this stage of my career and I really enjoy playing men’s football and I want more of that now.

“It’s much different to under-21s and it’s helped me a lot because you learn to adapt, and I feel like I’ve done that really well.

“It helps because it’s a different environment and it’s good to have that experience.”

 

Aims for next season…

“I would love to get as much game time as possible, that’s the aim and that’ll be the Club’s aim for me.

“Whether that be out on loan or not I don’t know, but I’m just looking forward to the next two years.”
